Liverpool fans react to Emre Can demanding £100K-a-week contract on social media
Liverpool star Emre Can is currently locked in negotiations over a new contract.
The Germany international of Turkish origin currently earns £35,000 but according to the Liverpool Echo his representatives have been demanding £100,000.
Can has not been in the best of form this season but he does have age on his side being just 22-years-old.
The central midfielder is into the last 18-months on his contract and Liverpool will have to make a decision on whether to keep him on or sell him over the summer.
We took a look at how Liverpool fans have reacted to the contract talks on social media.
Liverpool fans react
Is there middle ground to be found?
Devils advocate here but at 22 Emre Can is more than justified in asking for a £70k a week contract. Think £35k is low. Middle ground?

Liverpool probably want to avoid being faced with Pogba-esque problem of letting Can join a top European club only to have to pay over the odds to sign him back
Watch Emre Can sign 4 Juventus, play 50 games a season, become captain & become 1 of the worlds best CMs cos we wouldn’t give him shrapnel

Does Danny Ings really deserve more than Can?
For perspective, it’s worth mentioning Danny Ings is on a higher wage than Emre Can. End of the day, none of us are that arsed about wages.

Do you think he will leave over the summer?
Just realized Emre Can’s contract ends next summer in 2018. I think there’s a very good chance he would be sold this summer.

If we give Emre Can a new contract worth 70k a week, then I’m going supporting the Ev. Being deadly serious now.

Can still does have a few fans left – and not just admirers of his fair.
I think Emre Can deserves a new contract.
